Implant-supported rehabilitation with patient’s imbalance analysis through combined technique: EMG, postural platform and occlusal-postural semeiotics22 October 2021
With Teethan, the dentist can evaluate the patient’s occlusal balance in just a few seconds
We can imagine our mouth as a great gear that when it is activated involves the muscles of the neck and face, the dental arches and the bony structures that support them. And with an average of almost 2,000 times a day, each person closes his mouth by clenching his teeth, triggering this mechanism every time.
We refer to dental malocclusion when the relationship that is created between the teeth of the upper arch and those of the lower arch is not harmonious, giving rise to an incorrect occlusal balance. In cases of this kind, all the factors involved do not cooperate in a regular and harmonious manner, since they can create discomforts for chewing, swallowing and articulation of sounds. It may also occur that the malocclusion – in an attempt to compensate – affects the cervical tract, causing postural problems.
Detection of dental malocclusion in a scientific way
Until yesterday to detect the presence of a dental malocclusion disorder, the doctor used mainly the palpation and the experience gained in the field. Thanks to Teethan, the dentist is able to detect the scientific parameters of dental occlusion in a simple, rapid and non-invasive way. In fact, Teethan is the first totally wireless medical device that, at the end of the visit, provides a digital report that easily interpret the patient’s occlusal condition.
